Medicine or physics??? I'm in the 2nd year of a science/med dual degree this year. I start med next year. However, I really want to learn physics and maths to an advanced level. I was very good at maths and physics at high school. I really enjoy maths and physics. I haven't done any maths or physics at university - only biology. However, I have been teaching myself uni level calculus and linear algebra during the past week and found it pretty easy. I don't really know if I want to go to med school. I have heard that if there's anything else you'd rather do than medicine, then do it. The only reason I'm going to med school is to do research afterwards. The research I am going to do is in neuroscience. I'll be doing a PhD during the med degree as well. I would love to learn a lot of physics but I don't think I'm going to have any time once I start med school. I know I will excel in whatever career I enter but I don't know what I will enjoy more. I hate rote memorizing things. I disliked biology last year for that reason. I love solving problems and working things out. I know I will be able to do that in neuroscience research but an academic career in theoretical physics also appeals to me. Any advice?
